Men Are Stupid . . . And They Like Big Boobs: A Woman's Guide to Beauty
Through Plastic Surgery
Red-carpet fashion laureate, comic icon, and
outspoken superstar Joan Rivers is uniquely qualified to talk about plastic
surgery -- because she's one of the few celebrities unafraid to admit to the
world what she's "had done" to keep looking so great. Now, in this
no-holds-barred book, she gives women straight-talking advice on better living
through looking better.
Joan Rivers' abiding life philosophy is simple: in
the appearance-centric society of the twenty-first century, beauty is key --
especially where men are concerned. Men like pretty women. And so, getting
something lifted, tightened, adjusted, or removed is as fundamental as wearing
makeup or using hair conditioner; it's become something we do to make ourselves
look better. Now, for any woman considering her options, Joan Rivers takes the
mystery out of cosmetic surgery with a practical overview, aided and informed by
the country's top plastic surgeons, of almost every single cosmetic procedure
legally performed in America today. She takes readers step-by-step through these
entire processes, from fi nding the right doctor to the bruising truth about
recovery and the facts about cosmetic surgery's very real risks.
worry -- there's dish, too. Filled with Rivers' personal anecdotes about life
under the knife, Men Are Stupid...And They Like Big Boobs is also rife with
Hollywood gossip about who's done what and how often. Part comic musing, part
bitch-fest, and part hands-on advice, this is a bracingly funny, wildly frank,
and genuinely passionate argument for a woman's right to do whatever it takes to
be beautiful, to feel better about herself, and most of all to be happy -- not
only with who she is, but who she wants to be. Throughout the book, Joan Rivers
is right there, guiding and encouraging with no apologies, no excuses, and
absolutely no shame. Take it from the woman who enjoys having it all --
